Cesarica is situated in a lovely cove at the foot of the Velebit in a channel bearing the same name, 7 km northwest of Karlobag and 55 km southeast of Senj, next to the Adriatic Highway.
Few are acquainted with this jewel of the Croatian coast. Up to the Second World War this locality had a school, church and monastery. Current Cesarica is more of a weekend locality than a place to live in. It can be proud of its beautiful cove, crystal clear sea and the powerful Velebit in the background inspiring awe with its frequent gusts of the north wind bora .
The church of St. Helen with its parish building holds the people together( 18.08.). Ribarica is situated under the Adriatic Highway, at the foot of the Velebit in the Velebit Channel. It is located at 5 km northeast of Karlobag and 60 km southeast of Senj. This new locality is only about fifty years old and, thanks to its position, it has developed into one of the tourist centers of the Lika-Senj County.
